Poetic Asides WD Poetic Form Challenge: Haiku - Writer's Digest

WD Poetic Form Challenge: Haiku

Publish date:

After completing the recent November PAD Chapbook Challenge, a poet let me know he was relieved there were no poetic form prompts during the challenge. Usually, that's something I'll do on a Two for Tuesday prompt day--to give poets an "out" if they don't want to tackle a form. However, I'm about to make up for failing to have a poetic form prompt, because here is a poetic form challenge!

Here are the rules:

  • Write a haiku and post it in the comments below.
  • Enter as many times as you wish.
  • I'll choose a winner (or a few winners) who will represent the haiku form in a future issue of Writer's Digest.
  • Deadline is Monday (December 5, 2011) at noon--Atlanta, Georgia, time. So the clock is running--3 lines in 3 days.

...and other poetry terms, definitions, schools, etc., with The Poetry Dictionary, by John Drury. It's filled with poetic information and often comes along with me when I travel in case I want a quick way to remember the rhyme scheme for a kyrielle or rondeau. Plus, it contains poetry, so it's as much inspiring as informational.
